I just got a Peugeot iOn and I can't get the charging to work from the 7 kW wall box, but it does charge with the granny charger. I had a Renault Zoe a year ago which charged from the box with no issues, and there are no signs of damage (the app says everything is fine and can detect the car, but the car doesn't seem to allow charging to happen).

I believe the iOn is limited to 16 A, but my charger can modulate so I don't think this would be an issue. In the manual, it only mentions the granny charger and there is no mention of mode 3 charging, but surely this is possible? When I stick the cable in, the red charger light on the dash flashes 2 or 3 times so it does detect it, but for some reason it doesn't allow charging to happen.

Any ideas?

Few ways to test.
Try public charge post.
If this does not work change the cable
If this does not work it's the car.

From my understanding the ion does not have a type two and various cables can be used including some form of adaptor which can be used with a type 2 cable.

Good luck

Granny EVSE and wall EVSE should look identical electrically. Wall EVSE will offer more current, but it's the car's decision how much to use. Sounds like a cable connection problem. Check pins and receptacles are clean and corrosion free.
